Water Safety Series – DNA of a River
March 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
DNA of a River Workshop
Duration: 1 – 1.5 hours, Cost: $5
Our waterways are always changing. This workshop will focus on what makes up our local creeks and river, how water reacts to those things, and how to decipher and recognize the safest path.
Utilizing our “river in a bag”, we’ll have a hands-on discussion covering how water reacts to river features (downstream and upstream V, eddy, eddy lines, hydraulics, holes, seams and standing waves, etc); and hazards – both natural (sweepers, deadheads, strainers), and man-made (bridges, low-head dams, dredged areas). We’ll focus on how these affect the paddling experience and how they change at different water levels.
Please note – this is a classroom workshop. We will not be on the water.
Reservations required. Please call 814-723-3030 to sign up, or email email@example.com.
